Is working beneficial to our lives?

To all of us, work is just part of everyday life.

Now, what exactly do I mean by work? It can involve secular work like typical 9-5 at the office slugging away on the computer, or it could be labouring work, such as laying bricks.

To work is to get something done, to be actively engaged in something, as opposed to not working. Of course, many associate the word with a big frown and start thinking about secular work. But work can mean anything, from cleaning the house, picking up the kids from school during peak hours, trying to rebuild a broken marriage, cleaning out the cat litter, etc., involving work.

Working builds up your self-esteem. It makes you part of the community, feels valued, and gives you a sense of identity.

Secondly, it gives you a structure to the day.

For example, you might work part-time or full-time, knowing you will work from 9 am - 5 pm.

Thirdly, if it is secular work, it gives you money to buy the things you need and wants to live and enjoy a good standard of living. Finally, but most importantly, work is good for you because it gets things done.

Think about it, if a couple didn't work to build their relationship, do you think they would still be together? Also, if you didn't work cleaning the house, would you be able to enjoy a clean and healthy atmosphere in your home for both you and your family?

Well, not.

So next time you have work to do, do it. It may be best to work at whatever you are doing.
